Do you know that combing your hair is not only very good for the skin on your head, but also improve the blood circulation of your whole body? Getting the right comb not only can help make your hair look nicer, but also lead to better health.
Tan¡¯s, a small shop with a quaint wooden storefront, only adopts natural material, such as boxwood, ebony, sandalwood and buffalo's or cow¡¯s horns, to make their comb products. These materials are than coated in lacquer, all to allow the best comfort while you brush.
Every comb sold at this store is also a piece of art. The one I liked the most was a small-sized boxwood comb in black, with an engraving of red cherry blossoms at the top (RMB 128). I found it both graceful and elegant.
If you prefer health benefits over looks, then choose combs made from animal¡¯s horns (RMB150-300). Although not as fancy as the wood combs, they are more durable and better at massaging the skin on your head.
Besides combs, the make-up mirror (RMB150-200) that is made of sandalwood with Chinese painting on the top also looks gorgeous. Since Tan¡¯s is a franchise store, all prices are fixed.
